POLICE BEAT

Here are some safety tips from Director Christensen of the Department of Public Safety.
Today, binge drinking is out of control. It impairs your judgment, affects your body and can lead to trouble, but it also is a sign of immaturity to those around you.

* Alcohol affects your brain. Drinking alcohol leads to a loss of coordination, poor judgment, slowed reflexes, distorted vision, memory lapses and even blackouts.
* Alcohol affects your body. Alcohol can damage every organ in your body. It is absorbed directly into the bloodstream and can increase your risk for a variety of life-threatening diseases, including cancer.
* Alcohol affects your self-control. Alcohol depresses your central nervous system, lowers your inhibitions and impairs your judgment. Drinking can lead to risky behaviors, including having unprotected sex.
If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666, or if calling from a campus phone, dial 8-6666.
